Internet & Networking We've been talking about the browser ballot screen for a while now, which led to some obvious questions we couldn't answer. As it turns out (and I completely missed this), Microsoft actually posted a fairly detailed description of its proposal [.doc] on its website last Friday. It details everything from what it means not to have Internet Explorer installed to what the ballot screen will look like.

Canada has probably been corrupted (spelling-wise) by its proximity to the US.

The Canadian English dictionnary usually accept both spellings. To my experience, the french-speaking minority learns English as second language with the American spelling, although the british spelling is usually closer to our own spelling.

With British English 'recognise' can be spelled 'recognize' or 'recognise' - both are correct.

But, any Z spelling is seen as incorrect in formal language.
